Woodbine swears in councilmen to new terms

  • 0

WOODBINE — Two Borough Council members were sworn in to new terms Thursday, Jan. 6 during the borough’s annual reorganization meeting.

Councilmen Joseph E. Johnson III and Michael Benson took the oath of office as Mayor William Pikolycky took the opportunity to give his annual State of the Borough address.

“I congratulate these returning councilmen and look forward to working with the entire Borough Council this year,” added Pikolycky. “We look forward to a safe, healthy and prosperous 2022.”

Pikolycky said he expects not to have to increase property taxes this year, “a trend which has continued unbroken under my administration.”

In 2021, Woodbine had the third-lowest property tax bill in the state, he said.

“Through best management practices and shared services, Woodbine has continued to cover municipal needs without any additional tax burden,” he said.

Pikolycky looked ahead to a major project to bring public sewer service to the borough and a $5 million water treatment plant. The borough also is looking to convert a former landfill into a community solar array.

An Eco-Park near the elementary school is nearly complete, Pikolycky said. The last phase involves building a playground for people with disabilities.

You could eat a great sub on the hood of a car, and somehow it would still feel right. And I should know, as I did just that last week when I stopped in at Mandy’s Subs in Cape May Court House.

Something about the combo of beer and pizza just really works. On their own, each seems to be all but impossible to improve upon, but when combined, they become more than the sum of their parts — like milk and cookies for the over-21 crowd. It’s always fun to enjoy this combo at home, but if you can track down a bar that puts out a really great bar pie and also offers a few solid brews, you’ll be in your own private paradise. Luckily, we have done that work for you. Here are five great spots for a beer and a bar pie.
